I’m making a commitment to blog more regularly, starting from now.
It’s tricky to know where to begin, so I thought I’d just upload a few photos I snapped on my phone, on Sunday, when we walked the dog along to Yarmouth, where the Old Gaffers Festival was being held. http://www.yarmoutholdgaffersfestival.co.uk/
When we reached the ancient town the atmosphere was buzzing, yet relaxed. We were early and it wasn’t too crowded, so we could wander about unhurried, soaking up the festival vibe.
Markets stalls and continental food concessions lined the narrow streets. Classic vehicles and traction engines were exhibited; there were funfair rides for the children, an Art tent and craft stalls. Morris dancers performed to traditional mediaeval music, in the mediaeval square. Groovy!
Although it was more like the weather for ice~cream, I couldn’t resist a warm crab pastie ~ an interesting fusion that I’d never come across before. Martin declined to join me ~ for him the word ‘pastie’ describes only one form of baked goods and that has steak and potato in it and comes from Cornwall! Traditional or not, I enjoyed my adventurous choice. As did indie:
Finally, here’s Martin inspecting a classic Royal Enfield motorbike ~ I know that’s what it is because I recognise the logo; we used to own an Enfield Bullet:
It was a spur of the moment decision to visit the Old Gaffers Festival and I’m happy we made it!
My first blogpost for June ~ done! That wasn’t so hard 🙂
